I’m Just Average Teen Me. As I write this first part of the post, it’s 12:36 at night. You might say that’s a crazy time to start writing. It is, but that’s kind of the point. I’m attempting an all nighter tonight, and I thought I’d keep you updated throughout the post on what I’m up to, what I feel like, and just generally how things are going.
Let me set the scene: I’m in one of those static caravans, so basically a one story, slightly elevated, very small, plastic house. I’ll stick a picture of that sorta thing. We come here most school holidays, because my Grandma bought it and she insists we go as much as possible. Now, I’m 75% convinced I have claustrophobia, and mixed with my hatred of sleeping anywhere other than my own bed, means that I rarely get much sleep anyway. This time, I decided to ditch the whole sleeping thing. I’m on a sofa-bed, that hasn’t been pulled out because it’s even less comfortable than the actual sofa.
12:46: Never did I ever think id be dancing the choreo for Work From Home at almost 1am… Thus far, my hopes are fairly high… I bet I can do it, with a coffee tomorrow… Today? Tomorrow?
12:51: I’m so paranoid someone’s gonna get up and see me jamming out to 5H at 1am… That’d for sure pop some questions
1:05: It’s absolutely freezing, so I’ve just turned the heating on. Currently wishing I had my laptop, rather than just my phone, that likes to turn itself off a lot lately, to get me through the night..
1:52: I should really watch The Glee Project when I’m home and on stable WiFi. I don’t even know why I never watched it…
2:07: So far, staying awake is easier than I imagined, but someone is snoring reaaaaaaaal loud… Protip: if you’re pulling an all-nighter, splash your face with cold water every now and then!
2:17: In about 4 hours, people will start getting up. I have little brothers that insist on waking up at 6am (sometimes earlier… don’t even get me started on Christmas) – everyday. I’m not sure what’s wrong with them…
2:21: Okay, yep I’m hungry
2:42: Just read some fanfic for about 20 minutes… Not usually a fanfiction reader but when you’re awake at almost 3am there isn’t much else to do 😀
2:50: Oooooh do you think I’ll be able to watch the sunrise? Waait, it’s winter now, sunrise is later -.-
2:54: Yup, super tired right now.
2:58: I can’t believe I forgot my reusable Starbucks cup… I get 25p off with that… Well done me. I’m getting a Pumpkin Spice Latte tomorrow though!
3:23: I kid you not, I’ve been sliding around the room on a fuzzy blanket for 15 minutes…
3:50: Should I try to sleep for the last 2 hours? We’ll be out tomorrow and I’ll actually have zero energy… I can’t survive off 6 hours of sleep, let alone 2. Yeah, I’ll stay awake
4:26: I couldn’t sleep even if I tried. I’m a mess. Hungry. Exhausted. Cold.
4:59: Snuggled up to radiator with a blanket.
5:21: I want someone to wake up… I’m lonely.
6:19: Why is nobody up
6:32: Life dilemmas: We have bread, but no butter. WHAT IS THE POINT. *eats completely plain slice of bread*
6:50: I have now built a blanket fort with a radiator inside so I get all the heat. Everyone else can freeze.
7:35: People are up. I’m gonna be so dead today.
Basically, I was rather dead all morning, got some Starbucks, was a little more awake, but then it wore off in a couple hours. So, round about 5pm, I think I hit a barrier of ‘I’m-so-tired-that-I’m-not-even-tired-anymore’. I was asleep by 10, and woke up at 9:30, so I almost got 12 hours of sleep!
And that was my experience pulling an all-nighter! Hey, let’s share some all-nighter stories in the comments!
